Belt Material
   Belt Material      Belt materials exhibit different properties for strength, speed rating, power transmission capability and weight. Consult belt manufacturer on a specific application to optimize belt material selection.
   Your choices are...         
   Neoprene       Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that resists degradation from sun, ozone, and weather. It performs well in contact with oils and many chemicals. Neoprene remains useful over a wide temperature range, displays outstanding physical toughness, and resists burning inherently better than exclusively hydrocarbon rubbers. Neoprene also offers resistance to damage caused by flexing and twisting. Suggested operating temperature (-45° to 230° F). Neoprene was originally engineered by DuPont Dow. 
   Polyurethane       Polyurethane is a diverse class of materials exhibiting good elongation, recovery and toughness properties. They are flexible and have good abrasion resistance. (NOTE: The urethanes of the plastics industry are so named because the repeating units of their structures resemble the chemical urethane.) Trade names include Texin® (Bayer), Adiprene® and Vibrathane® (Uniroyal Chemical), Estane® (B F Goodrich), Genthane® (General Tire and Rubber), Millathane®, and Pellethane® (Dow Chemical). "Polyurethane" and "Urethane" refer to the same material. 
   Rubber       Natural compounds such as gum rubber (polyisoprene) and latex. 
   Urethane       Urethane (Polyurethane) is a diverse class of materials exhibiting good elongation, recovery and toughness properties. They are flexible and have good abrasion resistance. (NOTE: The urethanes of the plastics industry are so named because the repeating units of their structures resemble the chemical urethane.) Trade names include Texin® (Bayer), Adiprene® and Vibrathane® (Uniroyal Chemical), Estane® (B F Goodrich), Genthane® (General Tire and Rubber), Millathane®, and Pellethane® (Dow Chemical). "Urethane" and "Polyurethane" refer to the same material. 
   Other       Any unlisted primary belt material. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Reinforcement
   Reinforced Belt?         
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Reinforcement Material:      Reinforcement typically comes in the form of cords or bands running circumferentially along the belt near the top or at the pitch line. Consult with manufacturer for optimum reinforcement selection.
   Your choices are...         
   Fiberglass       Fiberglass is strong, durable, and impervious to many caustics and extreme temperatures; fiberglass fabrics are widely used in industry. 
   Kevlar®       Kevlar® is a man-made organic fiber developed by DuPont. It is characterized by aramid fibers in an epoxy matrix. The general features of Kevlar are high tensile strength at low weight, structural rigidity and durability, high chemical resistance, low electrical conductivity, and high flame and cutting resistance. It is used in many safety and heavy-duty industrial applications. 
   Polyester       Polyester covers a broad group of polymers that basically share configuration as repeated groups of esters. Polyester may come in fabric or line form, and may be combined and reinforced with other materials such as polycarbonate or glass. 
   Steel       Any type of steel or stainless steel wire, cord, or mesh.  Steel lends considerable strength to belting; it also adds weight and affects the minimum pulley diameter around which the belt may wrap. 
   Other       Any unlisted reinforcement material. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Performance Specifications
   Ultimate Tensile Strength:       The ultimate tensile strength is also referred to as the breaking strength or tension rating. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Maximum Operating Speed:       The maximum continuous operating speed that the belt is rated for. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
